Our outdoor pool is open from late May until early September.

Classes run in 4-week sessions and are limited to 3 children in a class.

Children should come ready to swim in their suits and swim diapers, if necessary. Children should bring their goggles and swim caps if necessary based on their level. Don’t forget your towel! If you’d like to change prior to heading home, swimmers can use our changing stations right on the pool deck.

Both class structures are designed to ensure your child receives the best care possible. If you are looking for your child to learn at a quicker rate, we suggest signing up for a private one-on-one class. However, if you want a more relaxed and affordable class, we suggest trying one of our group classes.
